The freezing process lasts 24 hours: during this period do not add other food to be frozen.
Storage of frozen food
When first starting-up or after a period out of use, before putting the products in the compartment let the appliance run at least 2 hours on the higher settings.
In the event of accidental defrosting, for example due to a power failure, if the power has been off for longer than the value shown in the technical characteristics chart under "rising time", the defrosted food must be consumed quickly or cooked immediately and then re-frozen (after cooling).
Opening and closing the lid
Never pull the handle with immense force.
As the lid is equipped with a tightly closing seal, it is not easy to reopen it shortly after closing (due to the vacuum formed inside). Wait for few minutes before reopening the appliance.
The vacuum valve will help you to open the lid.

Low frost system
The appliance is equipped with Low frost system (you can see a valve inside the freezer in the backside) what reduces ice-build-up in the chest freezer by up to 80 percent.

|The separator may also be used as a tray at the time of defrosting the freezer.|
The symbols show different types of frozen goods.
The numbers indicate storage times in months for the appropriate types of frozen goods. Whether the upper or lower value of the indicated storage time is valid depends on the quality of the foods and treating before freezing.
